Hi, I recently brought home a Fathom and I am noticing that even when the game is off there is a hum coming from the part where the power cord is attached to the game (embarrassed I cannot name this part). Obviously this is concerning. What should I do to remedy this situation? Thanks!

I mean this black block transformer looking thing (where the flashlight is shining). Cord that plugs into it goes to the "line filter box" area.
Wall Plug to Humming Box to Line filter Box. Mystery humming box is warm when plugged in and humming with machine off.

Thanks Vid! I wanted to call it a transformer so badly, but I was trying to figure out what it was transforming. It didn't show up in the schematics so I was really confused. Why wouldn't they put it after the power switch? So it serves no real purpose at all? Good bye power wasting transformer!

Quoted from vid1900:

Save the asbestos for when you need to solder a water pipe and don't want the house to catch fire.
Or when you need us use a heat gun and don't want to melt the surrounding components.

My house is covered in asbestos shingles so I am flush with asbestos around here! They really hold the paint well though.
